Orchard Whitney Brownfield Cleanup Project


The Orchard Whitney Site has a long history in the City of Rochester dating back to the mid 1800’s. The site was a vital part of the community; home to companies such as the Northeast Electric Company and the Delco Appliance Division of General Motors. The site was abandoned on 1990 and a large portion of the site was destroyed in a fire in 2003. Lu Engineers is working with the City of Rochester to cleanup the site and ready it for new development. The City has often referred to the Orchard Whitney Site as the “poster child of the Brownfield Program.”
